Veggie Tales

Today my dad came out to help us get our spring garden ready!

Look at this sweet boy!
He hung out on the porch with us while we scooped soil into our lil' seed pots.
(sideline- our porch has seen better days!
It's my next project.
I have something awesome in mind...)
We used chopsticks as veggie markers!
I can't wait until they start to sprout!
This picture has nothing to do with our veggie garden but
Lucas made this silly face while my dad was holding him...
Look at how big his hands look.
They swallow up Lucas! haha!
O...and these two thought they were Obi Won & Darth Vader!
I hope you had a great Tuesday!

Funny thing happened on the way to a meadow....

While driving I noticed this beautiful meadow...

The sunset was beautiful, and I didn't want to miss this oppurtunity.

so although the meadow was surrounded by fencing, we snuck in for just a few quick photos.

After we were done I had mentioned that the orange flowers in the meadow were lovely & how I'd love to grab a few for the house...

So as I gathered my things, and my lil' ones...
Brandon decided to pick a few flowers for me.

But instead of a few flowers, he pulled up a flower BUSH!

He started laughing so hard and running out of the meadow,
(like he had found a pot of gold)
yelling, "Let's get outta here!"
He is so special.

We seriously laughed so hard all the way home.
Brandon replaying it a million times over.
And he was dying to tell dad as soon as he walked in the door.

And now I have a lovely orange bush in a glass vase in my house on a table.

Park Time

Today was so good.
Good friends, bubbles, babies, enchiladas & target with my sister.
My perfect combination.

I'm realizing more & more that I get so wrapped up in the day to day life as a mom, that I forget how truly important my friends are.
They are such beautiful people.
And being around them is like a breath of fresh air.
I long to be around that more.

Kite Runners

Today was beautifully windy.
So we went outside and flew our kite.

(photos taken by brandon with isnap photo app)

Flying kites are pretty rough.
You get whipped, smacked & tangled.
But we never stopped laughing, which is pretty fantastic.

Ayden turned 4!

Dear Ayden,
You woke up in the best mood.
Telling me & daddy happy birthday.

You really loved your new batman wings,
and you were very excited about your birthday party.
You said it was your "first birthday."
I think you meant first party...
Brandon practiced playing his guitar.
He wanted to be the entertainment for you.
Lucas smiled, like always.

Friends & family came to celebrate you turning 4!

Your party was great and you had such a great time.
I could tell how special you felt.
And that should be what parties are all about.

I just want you to know how much we love you.
We love your imagination.
We love that you're a dreamer;
creating worlds where you are a winged superhero trying to save the world.
You are always on an adventure.
You have a serious hold on my heart.
and I really wish I could freeze time & keep you this way forever.
You light up our life.

Mommy & Daddy
